Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.

We know, Pamela Anderson knows a thing or two about crotch shots.

But even she can't believe the recent antics of Britney Spears, who's been flaunting her baby factory when she hits the clubs and is perfectly willing to go out with no pants on a whim.

Total Fashion Nightmare

We don't blame Pam for being fed up at the crazy crotch shot queens. It's one thing if you film yourself gettin' feaky in a full-on sex tape like Kim Kardashian or Keeley Hazell, then clandestinely leak it to David Hans Schmidt and try to make money off it. It's quite another to strut around offering glimpses of your business to the paparazzi.

Not cool. That's why, as the ex-Mrs. Kid Rock caresses her wine glass gently and strategically in the picture below, she's obviously looking to make a point. She's also a fan of the hit series Grey's Anatomy, apparently...

Come on, Heidi Montag.

We fully expected that we'd be yelling at the TV Monday night. Don't get us wrong on that. But we expected that the subject of our ire would be Spencer the boyfriend, not his lovely lady. But after watching last night's episode of The Hills, we are sorry to say we actually feel some sympathy for him.

Whoa! Never Saw That Coming!

After last week's pregnancy scare turned out to be a false alarm, Heidi's first response was to call Spencer and lead him on to think she was knocked up.

"I took a pregnancy test, and...

[wait for it... waaaaaaait for it]

... I'm not pregnant."

It was gratifying to see that smug smile momentarily wiped off Spencer's face, but he didn't deserve to get f*%ked with like that. He regained his footing fast, though, lying about Audrina and telling Heidi he would be testing her from now on. True to his word, next time we saw him he was asking Audrina out on a date.

The following morning, Heidi explained her motivation to Lauren, who, bless her little heart, rolled her eyes through the entire conversation:

"If he was gonna react wrongly, then I wouldn't want to be with him," Heidi said.

"I don't think there's a right way to react to that, though," replied a suddenly sage Lauren Conrad bluntly.

The rest of the episode was about Lauren, who was sent her off to work at a fashion show by swimsuit designer Ashley Paige. As soon as Lauren arrived at Ashley's, she was set upon by the flustered designer and a series of underworked assistants and interns who began ordering her to do stuff they could just as easily have done themselves.

Like answer the phone. The Hills is supposed to remind you of The O.C., not Punk'd, but based on Lauren's exchange with Ashley, you might be confused.

In the episode's third story line, Heidi set up Lauren to go on a date with Brody Jenner. Yes, that Brody Jenner.

According to Heidi, he is like, Spencer's best friend. Yeah, this show isn't staged or anything.

Regardless, Lauren wasn't having it at first, telling her that any man who used to be with Kristin Cavallari is off limits to her:

"Heidi," LC sighed. "He's been touched by Kristin. He's, like, tainted."

Oh. Snap. She. Went. There.

Sadly, it turns out, Brody seems to have somehow been tainted by another former Laguna Beach star: Jason. Ouch. Watching Lauren and Brody struggle through their dinner and fail miserably at first-date banter and then sit there mutely and smile at each other was a painful flashback to Jason Wahler.

Really, we thought Brody had more in him than this crap. No wonder Nicole Richie wasn't that into him either. And that's saying something.

We love kids here at T.H. Gossip. All of them.

But there's no doubt certain celeb spawn dominate the press. Suri Cruise is huge (and Asian). Every move of Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is fawned over. And the fact that the identity of Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern's daddy is still in question does little to quell the fascination with that little bundle of joy.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

That said, here's one of the celebrity babies we definitely don't see enough of. With fiancé Peter Sarsgaard at the Sundance Film Festival to promote their short film High Falls, Maggie Gyllenhaal and 3-month-old daughter Ramona kick back at Sunday brunch with a pal.

Wow, she's a cutie. We love Sarsgaarenhaal.

God. That fat f**k is everywhere these days. As much a celebrity as some of the people he covers on his blog, Perez Hilton is seen here with aspiring actress and Laguna Beach alumna Kristin Cavallari. Nauseous at the sight of our girl KC in the presence of this no talent hack, we just vomited in our collective mouth over here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Rollin' 20 Deep

Fortunately, this picture was actually taken a few weeks ago, when the two were attending a party at a club in Miami where DJ AM was spinning. So the horror of meeting Perez might have passed for the Laguna Beach cutie by now.

Speaking of DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, that mofo sure is a master when it comes to the turntables. And he's tapping Mandy Moore, which is a significant upgrade over his ex-fiancee, Nicole Richie. Then again, who isn't.

Actress, singer and certified cutie Mandy Moore has been lying low since splitting with her boyfriend of a year and a half, Scrubs star Zach Braff, last June.

But in the February issue of Jane Magazine, a dude-straddling Moore opens up about depression, leaving pop music behind, and why she doesn't like dating. Ooh. Don't tell this to Adam Goldstein, a.k.a. DJ AM (pictured), who's been following Moore around Hollywood and tapping that in the last several weeks.

Mandy Moore's New Hairstyle

Here are some interview excerpts:

On having a quarter-life crisis:
"I've been going through this really crazy time in my life â€" it's what I imagine people fresh out of college go through. I'm asking myself life-altering questions like, ‘Who am I? Where do I fit in this world? What am I doing, what do I want to do? Am I living to my full potential?"

On her early albums:
"I feel bad that people wasted their money on such trite, blah pop music."

THG NOTE: But if you did, it's better than Ashlee Simpson's crap.

On being depressed:
"A few months ago, I felt really low, really sad. Depressed for no reason. I'm a very positive person, and I've always been glass half-full. So it was like someone flipped a switch in me."

On breaking up with Zach Braff:

"The breakup added to what I was going through, but it's not the complete reason. It definitely doesn't help if you're already in that place..."

THG NOTE: Don't tell Braff, who's apparently battling depression already, but on top of DJ AM, Moore has also been linked to Andy Roddick and man whore Wilmer Valderrama.

On leaving pop music behind:

"I could've made a record a year ago with the same people who do everybody's records. But I'm super-proud that I stuck to my guns. You don't have to follow the mainstream. I love pop music but it's not right for me."

On dating:
"I've tried dating a bit, and I don't like it. I know I should be putting myself out there. But I don't really think it's for me. That's not to say I'm ready to jump back into a relationship any time soon. I'm definitely not looking. But it would be fun to have a crush."

On why she doesn't drink:
"I'm a control freak, and I think maybe that's why. I'm too scared to see what will happen. I've been drunk maybe 2-3 times in my life, though I do like to have a glass of wine before going into the studio, to mellow me out."

THG NOTE: Lindsay Lohan does the same thing - you know, just a glass of wine or 15 before she walks onto a movie set.

On her image:
"I kind of am a goody-goody. But I'm not judgmental. I've done a couple of movies [A Walk to Remember, Saved] where I've played Christian characters, so people assume I'm very religious. It's not a completely correct perception of who I am."

On the future:
"I'm still figuring it all out, but I want to be extraordinary. I want to live up to my full potential. I've always been really shy, very ‘don't look at me.' I've wanted to hide. But now I don't want to hide."

Project Runway season two finalist Kara Janx married boyfriend Sharone Sohayegh on January 14, People confirmed Monday afternoon.

For her big day, in Cape Town in her native South Africa, the 30-year-old Janx honored her roots with an African-themed wedding featuring local cuisine and indigenous flowers. Sounds a lot cooler than that lame TomKat wedding we didn't get invited to.

The couple met when Janx moved to the U.S. nine years ago and lived in the same lower Manhattan apartment building as Sohayegh. She then went on to stardom on the hit, Heidi Klum-led reality series.

Sohayegh and Janx started dating back in 2003, right around the time Mischa Barton last ate food, and the New Jersey native proposed to Janx, days before New York Fashion Week.

The newlyweds to stay in New York City, where Sohayegh works as a commercial real estate broker and Janx runs her eponymous clothing line.

Though Janx came in fourth on Project Runway, she still came up with a winning design: The jersey kimono-style dress she created and wore on the show has become her signature - and most popular - piece.

"It's been spectacular for me," she said.

Janice Dickinson had no comment. Not that she would have any reason to. She's not affiliated with Project Runway. She is, however, insane.

Last week, we reported that John Mayer had a way to fix the Grey's Anatomy rift caused. Now someone else is throwing in his two sense.

Neil Patrick Harris, the star of How I Met Your Mother who first became a household name when he portrayed Doogie Howser, M.D., came out of the closet last fall right after Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight came out - only Knight did so after co-star Isaiah Washington made a gay slur on the set.

How I Met Your Mother Stars

Then, at the Golden Globes last week, the situation came full circle when Grey's Anatomy won Best TV Drama. Prompted by the press, Washington vigorously denied making the slur about Knight... while repeating said slur. Two days later, Knight told Ellen DeGeneres how Washington did indeed make the slur.

Here's Harris' take:

"T.R. has proven himself to be an incredibly classy, dignified guy," he said. "I'm impressed that Katherine Heigl said what she said. I was shocked that it all reared its ugly head again... I was just sort of stunned that anyone would want to rehash any of that. But I think the people, the classier people, handled it as they always do."

Unlike Mayer, Harris wouldn't comment or speculate - seriously or not - on what punishment should be doled out to the homophobe with a history of violence.

"It's impossible for me to make any kind of comment about that because I wasn't there when it happened," Harris said. "It's just disappointing that it's... cyclical."

It is disappointing. You know what else is disappointing? That Perez Hilton is getting rich trying to out gay celebs and making the lives of stars like Lance Bass a living hell.

Anyway, as far as Harris' own coming out, the actor hinted that his choice to go public was fueled by a desire not to be exposed in such a fashion as Knight.

"It's been a bit of a non-story to be honest," he said. "The one thing I didn't want was to have to make a statement in retaliation or in response to a quasi-scandalous event, because you never want to be defensive. I felt that there was this sort of kindling burning underneath, a story was being searched for. I just never wanted to live my life in a way where I was backdooring and cowering and trying to, like, avoid. So I think the statement that I made sort of quieted the speculation."

We applaud Neil for the mature way he handled his life-changing decision last fall and for his comments on this matter. It's good to see that for every worthless Cisco Adler type we come across in this business, there's a classy Neil Patrick Harris to cancel things out.

Everywhere Jennifer Lopez goes, drama is sure to follow.

But even the woman who once comprised half of the original Bennifer could not see this one coming. During the auditions for her new Glow After Dark reality show Friday night, two representatives from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) took the stage.

Jennifer Lopez Close Up

Covertly, they first pretended to audition before launching into a tirade against the fur-loving singer/actress and possible Scientology convert.

The event, which was held at Macy's in Downey, California, erupted into complete chaos as one of the animal rights activists busted out with a funny, rhyming chant that went, "J.Lo, fur ho!"

The other faux contestant railed against Lopez as well, stating:

"I think the most important thing about being a diva... is not only being sexy and being stylish, but is not wearing real f***ing fur!"

The shocked M.C. scooped up one of the infiltrators and strong-armed her off the stage. Lopez was not present during the outburst. Neither was Beyonce. Not that she would have had any reason to be. But that girl also loves her some fur.

Famke Janssen, who has been an outspoken advocate of animal rights despite her unabashed love for pork products, could not be reached by The Hollywood Gossip for comment.

In other animal rights news, PETA backer Pamela Anderson has fired off an angry letter to the U.S. Postal Service, which plans on immortalizing KFC founder Colonel Sanders on a stamp. Writes Pam:

"Honoring a man whose legacy involves breaking animals' bones and scalding animals to death in defeathering tanks is contrary to the values of most compassionate citizens."

Wow. One could say Pam went postal on those bitches. Eh?

The former star of The OC, Mischa Barton, and her dirtbag boyfriend, Cisco Adler, came within minutes of being part of a search and seizure warrant being executed on a medical marijuana distribution center in West Hollywood on January 17.

Stoned Mischa Barton

Adler's visit to the center that day was no different than any number of times he visited it. As usual, Cisco parked his Mercedes on the busy street with girlfriend Mischa Barton waiting patiently in the passenger seat.

Cisco was buzzed in, and after less than five minutes inside, he appeared with a small white bag, and the two drove off.

As Badler left, they failed to notice that two nearby side streets were lined with police cars, and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) officers wearing bullet proof vests who were preparing to raid the small store front.

Just 15 minutes after Cisco Adler and Mischa drove off, the agents stormed in and sifted through documents, copied hard drives, and left with pounds of marijuana and other paraphernalia. Officials did not say whether Nicole Richie was also in there at the time. But it wouldn't be shocking.

Medical marijuana became legal in California in 1996, but while the Golden State technically legalized medical marijuana, the Federal Government still considers it illegal, and the Feds have all the power over the state. Local officials lately have been taking legal action as well as the DEA to crack down on shops.

We don't know what painful and life-threatening ailment has stricken Cisco and Mischa have that they need almost daily doses of marijuana, but we do know that he may have to find other avenues to fulfill their special needs.

Local officials in Los Angeles are now calling for a suspension of all pot shops until they can investigate if the pot shops are operating within the limitations of the law. Don't worry, guys - surely Kevin Federline can get you his dealer's pager number.

Bodog Entertainment, the online betting enterprise that recently brought us odds on which celebrity would be involved in a DUI arrest, has just posted the official odds something even more intriguing:

Who will be the father Britney Spears' next child?!

Old Skool Britney

Is your life so utterly devoid of excitement that you'd consider putting money on it? We sure would. Here are the primary contenders, and the opening lines, courtesy of BoDog.com, with the photo below of another one of Britney's heinous outfits courtesy of X17Online.com.

Perez Hilton (a.k.a. Mario Lavandeira): 100/1
Brandon Davis (a.k.a. Greasy Bear): 12/1
Former President Bill Clinton: 20/1
President George W. Bush: 28/5
Kevin Federline: 13/3
Mel Gibson: 31/1
Justin Timberlake: 11/2
Isaac Cohen: 5/3
Hugh Hefner: 12/1
Larry Rudolph: 11/5

Personally, we like George W. Bush as a dark horse, although he's going to have his hands full ousting some of the favorites. Kind of surprising that his oversexed predecessor, Bill Clinton, is more of a long shot. We shudder to think how Paris Hilton, Spears' former BFF, would react if her pal Brandon Davis knocked Brit up.

As far as the favorites go, you can never count out FedEx (those boys can swim!), or TimberlakeEx, now that Cameron Diaz is out of the picture. It's interesting that Isaac Cohen, Britney's current boyfriend, is running just about neck-and-neck with her manager, Larry Rudolph, who's seen with her just about as often.

Both Cohen and Rudolph, who may be the worst manager ever, given Brit's slide in terms of public opinion, have shown they're adept at handing the kids she already has, so both would seem likely to impregnate her soon. Well, likely compared to freaking Perez Hilton at least. That mofo likes dudes!
